Shanr's review of: Love and Respect: The Love She Most Desires, The Respect He Desperately Needs
Love and Respect is a fantastic work that provides deep insight into what makes a marriage tick. When I started reading this book, I was wary, not wanting to be fed a bunch of nonsense that would only hurt, rather than help, my marriage. After reading a few pages, I was hooked! Dr. Eggerichs hits the nail on the head each and every time. The focus of this book is love (being the main need of the woman) and respect (being the main need of the man). Dr. Eggerichs goes even further to examine the fears of each gender that shape our beliefs and needs. I was amazed that each and every chapter seemed to be written specifically for me, yet it applies to every marriage on the face of the earth. I did not pick up this book because my marriage was experiencing rocky times, but I know that the knowledge I gained by reading Love and Respect will help me in every situation my husband and I will face in the future - good times or bad. This book is perfect for anyone, from newlyweds to those celebrating their 60th+ wedding anniversaries. The information found in Love and Respect is certain to provide help and encouragement to anyone who reads it.
